“We have to leave this form of capitalism behind, otherwise everything will collapse soon,” said Bezzel of the “Main-Post” (Saturday). “I’m definitely a friend of a top tax rate and a wealth tax, because otherwise we can never compensate for the inequality in society.”
Plea for environmental awareness
Anyone who earns a lot of money has “the obligation to put it back into the economy,” said Bezzel. For example, he likes to eat well. “On the other hand, I have a reserved relationship with possessions. That’s also an environmental concern. It can’t be that every child produces 50 kilos more plastic waste.” That’s why he prefers to buy his kids “second-hand Lego toys,” Bezzel said. “Little kids don’t really notice the difference.” But his son “actually has too much of it” anyway.
